Will Bo Turned Over to the Local
TJiose citizens of Hcnd who arc
actively engaged in advertising and
boosting Hcnd and vicinity arc soon
going to be materially assisted in
their efforts by having n home of
their own. In other words a club
room where prosjicctivc buyers and
investors can be taken to spend a
pleasant evening or to discuss busi
ness matters privately if they so
desire. The buildini: that will be
used for that purine is the one
heretofore known as the "Club
House." A reorganization of the
local push club will prolmbly be
effected and the new club room put
in charge of its officers.
The "Club House" is now un
dergoing extensive alterations and
improvements. Partitions have
been removed so as to provide a
large room fronting the river and
with n beautiful r'ver and mountain
view. At each end of this room
will be two fire-places to provide
warmth and cheer when the days
and evenings arc cool. The room
will b: furnished in harmony with
its purpose, nil the best magazines
will be kept on file, and nothing
left undone for the comfort nud en
tertainment of the visitors whom
the club members may take there.
Adjoining this room on the south
is uuotlicr that will be given over
entirely to a collection of exhibits
of the products of this country.
These exhibits nrc now being col

cverytuing tliat grows and can be
grown here, and everything that
helps to show the mauy resources
of this section. Such an exhibit
will be of great interest not only to
visitors out to Hcnd people as well.
And nothing is so valuable in an
advertising way as np actual visible
demonstration of what the country
Another feature that Is contem
plated but not fully determined up

adopted is the hiring of a man

A force of 35 men and 18 teams
is now camped at the old river bed
in the vicinity of the location where
the big stave pipe is to be built, the
big flume that Is to c,arry water
across the old river bsd onto the
fertile lands surrounding Powell
Uuttcs. This crew has excavated
a cut two and a half feet deep in
which wilLbc built the stave pipe.
After the work is finished the pipe
wilt be covered with dirt to protect
it from the sun's heat. The pipe is
56 inches, or nearly six feet, in di
ameter. It was necessary to build
400 feet of flume at its entrance in
order to keep the canal at the proper

ing piece of work. Few people have
any idea of the amount of material
in the way of staxxs, hoops and iron
work that will be used in its con
struction. The weight of all this
material aggregates 85 tons of
freight, or 170,000 pounds. The
entire shipment includes two car
loads of lumber, one of iron rods
bands, etc., and a lot of local freight
About half df this material is on the

Its cost would appear like quite a
little fortune to some people. The
contract price of the big pipe is $6,

freighted from Shaniko, aud the
additional expense for lumber nnd
labor will easily bring the total cost
up to $9,000 or 10,000. The first
expense will be heavy but it will be

FAIR VERY SUCCESSFUL.
Large Crowds and flood Exhibits
PniNnviLLK, Oct. 39 The third
and most successful session of the
Crook county faircloses today. It has
been a success from the standpoint
of exhibits and attendance. The
races have been good and the man
agement feels that the proper thin
was done in postponing the dates.
The exhibits of live stock, white
not very extensire, arc of excellent
quality. Among other exhibitors
the Baldwin Sheep & Land Com
pany and G. Springer were present
with horses. G. Springer and J.
R Brcen were the principal exhib
itors of hogs. Quite a large display
of very nice poultry was made. The
Cove Orchard as usual was here
with a fine display, but there were
many oiucrs wno naa a tew sam

elation. Irrigated and dry land

Asphaltum is a sort of mineral pitch
and acts as a protection to the irou
against the corroding work of the
elements. The contract held by
the National company includes the
building of the pipe, which will re
quire about a month with the force
of men available. The company is
badly iu need of men and is anxious
to increase its force but it is next to
impossible to get them.
Much other work is being done
iu that vicinity. A large drainage
ditch is to be built from the stave
pipe down the old river bed, which
will empty itito Crooked river.
This ditch will drain lands lying in
the old river bed and will also act as
a drain for that portion cf the Cen
tral Oregon caual lying east of the
stave pipe. The pipe will be so
built that its entire flow can be
turned down this drainage ditch.
Therefore, in case of an accident to
the canal at any point beyond the
big pipe, It would only be necessary
to turn the flow of the caual down1
